Item description for Racial Disparity in Social Spatiality by J. Terry Johnson...
This study investigates the existence of an ethnic separation in different settings of leisure activities. The author examines the relationship between race, gender, socioeconomic status, and education with respect to the usage of popular cultural activities and high cultural activities to demonstrate the racial disparity occurring in both. A literature review pertaining to the usage of outdoor recreation, as in camping and hiking evidences the influence of racism on the disparity in Nonwhite participation. In contrast to out-door leisure activities, literature evidences the influence of class instead of race for the disparity in indoor leisure activities. Using the 1993 General Social Survey (GSS), the author is able to arrive at the conclusion that the type of leisure chosen by an ethnic group relates much less to the educational level, economic status or the place of residence as it does to the perception of the socially constructed settings. This book is addressed to individuals concerned with the relationship between racial and ethnic groups, and the dynamics that exist. This book is also directed towards those involved in statistical research, of which, half of this book is composed.
